Cascina Belvedere Carnaroli Italian Rice:

Organic rice fromLombardy, Italy. Carnaroli rice is considered by most chefs to be the finest risotto rice available. It cooks up wonderfully, retaining the beautiful texture and flavor that makes Carnaroli “king of risotto rices.” The Carnaroli rice grains have the highest content of amylose, a substance that contributes to make the grain compact. For this reason, it boasts special gastronomic attitudes with an excellent balance between good absorption capacity and little starch loss so that there is no danger of overcooking.
This makes it an excellent rice variety, particularly appreciated by great chefs for the ability of its grains to stay hard at the core and to stay perfect and well separated.
